The Morningstar analyst also favors AllianceBernstein Global High Income (AWF, $16, 7.7%). The fund, which takes on a modest amount of debt, invests in corporate bonds and U.S. and foreign government bonds. Top holdings include bonds issued by Brazil and Argentina, but more than 70% of assets are in corporate junk bonds.
Hi Tim – You really need to sit down with that group of individuals and have a consensus as to where you want to invest. On in individual level with a five year time horizon, I’d probably go with an equal mix of peer-to-peer lending for higher return, and CDs for safety. But that’s just an opinion. I don’t know what your personal situation and risk tolerance are.
When a government at the state or local level needs to borrow money, they don’t use a credit card. Instead, the government entity issues a municipal bond. These bonds, also known as munis, are excempt from Federal income tax, making them a smart investment for people who are trying to minimize their exposure to taxes. Most states and local municipalities also exempt income tax on these bonds, but talk to your accountant to make sure they are exempt in your specific state.
I hope Apple adds push notification support to AirDrop in iOS 8. The requirement that both devices be unlocked (or recently locked) to initiate AirDrop is ridiculous, and it should only be necessary when there’s no Internet connection. The device could make note of which devices are nearby when it’s unlocked, and then compare that list to the push notification Apple sends to see if it’s likely that the device requesting AirDrop is still in the vicinity. If the requesting device isn’t on the list, AirDrop would refuse it, but if it is, AirDrop would initiate a connection, verify it, and then alert the user.
Excessive exposure to a specific market sector within any asset class could put investors at greater risk. It’s important to seek diversification across a wide range of issues and industries in order to reduce the negative impact of a default.
AirDrop is an excellent solution if you want to quickly get to someone in the same room. You do need to be within Bluetooth range of each other, around 30-feet with no walls in between both parties.
For one, a company’s shares, released during an IPO, always denote a share of ownership in the respective company. This is not, by default, a case with crypto-tokens that are sold to the public in an ICO. Crypto-tokens can be used to transfer voting powers – a larger share of tokens giving more voting power – in some projects, but more often those tokens are just that – units of currency that you can send to other users and exchange for other currencies.
Cumulative Preferred. Accumulates any dividends that the issuing company cannot pay due to to financial problems. When the company is able to catch up on its obligations, then all past due dividends will be paid to shareholders.
When such CDOs are backed by assets of dubious value, such as subprime mortgage loans, and lose market liquidity, the bonds and their derivatives become what is referred to as “toxic debt”. Holding such “toxic” assets led to the demise of several investment banks such as Lehman Brothers and other financial institutions during the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007–09 and led the US Treasury to seek congressional appropriations to buy those assets in September 2008 to prevent a systemic crisis of the banks.
In reality, Apple created AirDrop as a simple way to exchange things without pecking in an email address or phone number, and it continues to be wonderfully brilliant. Since September, it’s also worked between iOS devices and Macs, opening up an even wider group of targets.
Once a connection is established via Bluetooth, an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network is created to link the two devices together, allowing for faster transfer speeds. Basically, Bluetooth is used for discovery and token setup, while the more robust Wi-Fi protocol is leveraged for transfers.
The real estate industry has benefited from historically low mortgage rates, which makes the cost of owning real estate lower than with higher mortgage rates. Since 2009, the economy has been expanding nicely as most of the country rebounds from the 2008-09 housing bust and mortgage meltdown.
Currently, we know that every miner validates every transaction, and each transaction comes with a zero-knowledge proof that it doesn’t violate conservation-of-money (i.e. a proof that the money coming out of the transaction is ≤ the money going into the transaction).

At the time of writing, 1 BTC is worth $2,614, 1 ETH is worth $286.31 and 1 ZEC is worth $296.12.

An ICO typically involves selling a new digital currency at a discount — or a “token” — as part of a way for a company to raise money. If that cryptocurrency succeeds and appreciates in value — often based on speculation, just as stocks do in the public market — the investor has made a profit.
Investing in cryptocurrencies and other Initial Coin Offerings (“ICOs”) is highly risky and speculative, and this article is not a recommendation by Investopedia or the writer to invest in cryptocurrencies or other ICOs. Since each individual’s situation is unique, a qualified professional should always be consulted before making any financial decisions. Investopedia makes no representations or warranties as to the accuracy or timeliness of the information contained herein. As of the date this article was written, the author owns no cryptocurrency in any quantity.

Peer-to-peer vehicle-and-bicycle sharing company Drivezy has attracted USD 10 million from the equity and debt capital markets from investors in the United States, Japan and some in India. Whether that success can be parlayed over to the cryptocurrency market is yet to be seen, and no doubt upcoming ICOs in India are watching. Drivezy was able to attract that capital under the premise that it accepts bitcoin amid a partnership with India exchange Unocoin, which is a promising sign.
